This is my first trip as an organizer. Don't worry, I've been there once, and the chance to get lost is almost 1% (I didn't say 0%, who knows...)

I know it is right after the reading break and most of you have plenty of midterms, but this trip is a great opportunity to take a nice break to decompress (or not, depending on the number of times you will fall with your skis...).

It will be a day ski and/or snowshoe trip. If people are willing, it can be an overnight trip as well. There is a nice warm hut to rest and cook, but we have to sleep in tents.

Unless you want to explore and do some harder skiing, no avi package is required. There is a nice not too steep hill perfect to practice your skiing abilities. If you never skiied before, this trip is perfect for you. 

I limit the number of participants to 15, but if some experiences people want to help me, I can accept more.

You have to borrow your gear before Friday February 15th, the clubroom is closed for reading week.

If you have questions, post them on the message board, or email me.
